CLOUD (Consortium for Local Ownership and Use of Data) Inc CEO on ‘N of 1 Accountable Care’

By Gregg A. Masters, MPH

On the Friday, February 10th, 2012 broadcast of ‘This Week in Accountable Care’ I had the pleasure of chatting with Gary Lee Thompson, aka @GaryLeeThompson, and @CLOUDhealth on Twitter.

As the second installment in our HIMSS 2012 countdown to Las Vegas, we spent some time getting to know Gary, understanding both his tech (and legal) background as well ‘the storm’ of 2003 (see: A View from Gary: Survivorship is Not a Phase) when the diagnosis of cancer was presented to he and his wife Maureen, concurrent with her learning she had passed the boards for licensure as an architect to practice in the state of Texas.

Gary is a thought leader who has proposed a vision of a re-fabricated internet, where the ‘you’ and the ‘what’ are contextually connected in real time and wrapped in a dynamic state of ‘you’ rights driven tag access to disparate health information silos.

We discuss his vision and it’s relationship to enabling accountable care. To listen to an archived replay of the broadcast, click here.

    1. Thanks for comment. Gary is on to something. I think we have a way to go, but clearly inverting the pyramid to a ‘me centric’ patient’s first paradigm is consistent with ‘accountable care’.
